What is Criminology?

Criminology is the scientific study of crime. You will be examining the root cause of the crime and every conceivable reason of deviance. Essentially, it is to explain why criminals do what they do. You will work behind the scenes, supporting law enforcement and analysing the cause and impact and response to crime and deviance.  The focus is to examine crime scenes through scientific means and derive methods to prevent criminal behaviour.
